Tribal: rVAP percentile

Performance ranks are a quick visual measure of the contestant's season vs. historical data from all prior contestants, in three basic (scorable) categories:

1. Performance in individual challenges (MPF), as a measure of "physical game";

2. Ability to vote people out consistently (VFB%, or VFB/TCA), or "strategic game"; and

3. Ability to avoid being voted against (rVAP, or TCA-VAP) - which scales better than a percentage would - for "social/strategic game."

Official CBS Survivor 46 bio excerpts, as published by Dalton Ross at EW.com (February 5, 2024):

"Name three of your favorite hobbies: Dancing, swimming, yoga

List three adjectives that best describe yourself: Energetic, disciplined, passionate

How would your friends describe you? My friends have often called me adaptable and independent because I’ve lived alone in many different cities. They also tell me I’m emotional both in how I express myself but also because of my great ability to listen and support my friends with what they’re going through. I’m always there for my friends.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Becoming a citizen of the United States of America.

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I’m very good at making first-time impressions, combined with my expressive social media presence, people often mistake me for an extrovert. However, I’m an introvert at heart.

What past Survivor would you play the game most like? John Cochran"
